Winnipeg Jets Sign Forward To Multi-Year Deal

The Winnipeg Jets have signed forward Dominic Toninato to a two-year, two-way contract extension.

Originally from Duluth, Minnesota, Toninato stands at 6'2" and weighs 200 pounds, playing primarily as a center.

The contract, set to begin at the start of the 2023-24 season, will pay Toninato an average annual salary of $775,000 when playing in the NHL and $350,000 when playing for the AHL's Manitoba Moose.

Toninato had a decent year in the AHL, recording 19 goals and 35 points in 50 games with Manitoba during the 2022-23 season. He has also played in a total of 169 NHL games, scoring 12 goals and totaling 18 assists for 30 points, with 84 of those games played for Winnipeg.

In the 2021 playoffs, Toninato scored one goal for the Jets in six playoff games.

Drafted as the 126th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft by the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toninato played four years for his hometown University of Minnesota-Duluth before starting his professional career with the Colorado Avalanche organization in the 2017-18 season.

He has since spent the last three years with the Jets organization, earning a total of around $3.3 million in career earnings. Photo Credit: James Carey Lauder-USA TODAY Sports
